Pencilled with ephemeral delicacy, Matthew Monahan’s Figure Back is less a diagram than an impression. Emerging from the ground as a skeletal ‘remain’, forms are embossed, traced over, erased, and ebonised: capturing a sense of preservation and decay. Pictured on an elongated sheet of paper, Matthew Monahan’s figurative aberration is not merely a representation, but a falsified artefact: the ground, sullied and blotted, acts as both canvas and shroud, a museum-like curios or holy relic claiming the truth of myth
